Incorrect ultrasound scan

Sometimes ultrasound scans can be inconclusive and a number need to be completed to be confident of the diagnosis. This can be a quite worrying time, particularly if you face very different outcomes depending on the results. For example, if you were told initially that you had fibroids, which may require surgery, but on a second scan, it was confirmed that you had adenomyosis, a manageable condition which doesn’t require surgery, would this be a misdiagnosis and could you make a medical negligence claim?
